  1. Americans originally told us decades ago that The Group of Seven is Canada’s best. Now another generation of Americans is doing it again. Yet again Americans are brainwashing everybody what to think and appreciate as valuable. Steve Martin – American; Colm Feore – American; Nancy Lang – American; Peter Raymont – a Canadian who documents Canadian failures; So, what we get is A bunch of Americans and one Canadian lacky telling Canadians and the world what is Canada’s alleged best by re-telling the Group of Seven story about a bunch of backwoods Canadians who’s best works look like Paint-By-Numbers done by kids in grade 4 public school. Why doesn’t the ‘elite’ appreciate Real Art, like that of Canadian Cory Trepanier http://www.trepanieroriginals.com/ Instead the whole world has yet again gone insane for abstract junk. Makes me weep, and very angry.

  2. So angry that you post the same thing under many handles, over and over…”Stevie” and whatever else you use when you post about how Americans have taken over culture. Thank God most Canadians don’t share your parochial, paranoid, Anti-American and wingnutty views on “Canadian Cultural Purity”
